Our Christmas in photos {part one}

Let's begin with Christmas Eve... {my favourite night of the year}

We put out our photos so Santa could see how good we've been this year {aren't the frames great? they were made for the boys by Alan's mum}

We made these hilarious gooey marshmallow snowmen and put them on a candy cane sled. I think they took the hill too fast... looks like they're about to go flying off, doesn't it? {that's a calendar photo of a Vancouver ski-slope in the background!}

Our local firehall sends Santa around the neighbourhood just when it gets dark on Christmas Eve {checking one last time who's on the naughty and nice lists} We look forward to it every year!

Pugh boys wishing Santa a Merry Christmas, and saying thanks for the candy canes

Our twinkly house

My parents always come over on Christmas Eve for snacks and a visit and carol singing. They gave the boys their presents and Dylan was sooo excited to get a microscope! He gave Grandma the happiest hug.

Me, opening up the traditional Christmas Eve gift of pajamas from my dad


Alan and I bought new pjs for the boys {the tradition continues}- they're wearing them here as they sit on Grandpa's lap

Sitting by the Christmas tree, looking adorable in new Christmas pajamas.

Stockings hung by the chimney with care {I made those years ago... who knew how great they'd look with our freshly painted living room and fireplace?!}

Milk and cookies and a mince pie for Santa {there were carrots for the reindeer, too}

Our Christmas tree, and all the gifts under it once Santa had been!

It was a great night, but it was a crazy December what with the renos and flu bug, and we were so not ready for the 24th when it arrived. We were up until 1 a.m. wrapping presents! Never again...

Christmas morning photos coming soon! Until then, tell me about your Christmas Eve?
